In brief: Thyroid meds = OK
Thyroid meds given at the proper dose will only leave you feeling well, and normal.
If underdosed, you will still feel tired, cold, and may be overweight, with dry skin and brittle hair. If overdosed, you may have sweats, rapid irregular heart that may lead to heart failure and stroke (atrial fibrillation) and may even promote a silent disease, that thins out your bone (osteoporosis).
